Contrasting With Colour: Lingerie Edition

When opposites come together, beauty happens. That rings true especially with fashion. A good contrast helps an ensemble pop, playing with your eyes for a dynamic and noticeable look. To keep lingerie fun and exciting, #ShopNTL loves to make fashion trends and rules work for lingerie, and contrasting colours is a fabulous way to play with the lingerie you might own or might want from #ShopNTL. When we discuss contrasting colours, we have to examine colour theory to figure out which colours are opposites – luckily for you, we’ve done some of that work for you here. Play along with us contrasting with colour by putting together pieces that contrast each other, and enjoy some pieces created with contrasted colours that pop out brilliantly.
Pretty Little Bralettes Racerback Bralette & Pretty Little Panties Hipster by Blush Lingerie

This simple and leisurely set is a perfect addition for everyday wear, with lovely contrast in a variety of different colours. Lace trim adorns the edges of the bra and hipster for a nice contrast to the bright colours of this set. Ruching detail meets in the middle of the bra for a shaping effect, where no wires allow for a comfortable, natural feel. You’ll want to wear the hipster every day it’s so comfortable.

Essentials With Satin Chemise by Calvin Klein


Your sleepwear can play into the contrasting trend with this easy, breezy chemise that’s smooth against your skin. It’s made of modal, which stretches along with your movement. The satin trim along the bustline adds contrast, and a luxurious detail to such a classic look. It’s a flattering cut that every woman can adore.

Beauty Full Basics Icon Icon Underwire Padded Bra by Triumph Lingerie & Signature Boy Leg Brief Panty by Elita Lingerie


Our first contrasting mix and match set puts together a somewhat sporty look with the easiest colours to put together; black and white. The bra itself is built with contrast, as is the rest of the matching panties that actually go with the bra. The lace is striking with a sexy addition of mesh along the top of the cups, and a little white bow and the white straps stand out even more. Pair this bra with a simple boyleg panty, a surprisingly sexy panty with great coverage and a seamless finish.

Olga Lace Triangle Bra & Lace Brazilian Thong by Affinitas Intimates


If you’re looking for a little hint of contrast, the stunning yet subtle detail on the Olga set is what you want. The triangle bra is a comfort piece with no wires or padding. There is still a little lift in the design which allows for a natural shape if that’s what you love. The straps and little bow details on the bra and panty in a lovely orange stand out from the pale pink ensemble.

Patricia Half Padded Balconette Bra by Affinitas Intimates & Victory Lace And Sheer Mesh Hipster by Blush Lingerie


Each colour has its opposite, and the combination of this reddish orange and bluish green is just so genius and fabulous we wanted to share it with you. The balconette bra is perfect for you if you’re not huge on padding but love the shape it provides, with a gorgeous unique lace detail at the top of the cups. It’s an ultra feminine look that goes so well with the Victory panty. Lace applique and dotted mesh make up this very seductive hipster that meets at the back with sheer mesh and moderate coverage.
